UPDATE: Man who shot himself on PCC Downtown Campus in critical condition

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A man was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the Pima Community College Downtown Campus on Sunday, July 23, according to police.

According to Tucson Police Department Lt. Jennifer Turner, the man was taken to a hospital after police found him in the PCC Library at Speedway Boulevard and Stone Avenue. Turner said that when the man was found, he was alive but unresponsive. 

He is currently listed in critical condition.

Police believe the man forced entry into the building and set off an alarm around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. TPD says one shot was heard as they responded with PCC police just minutes later. 

"We were clearing the library and heard a shot. We backed out to wait for SWAT," Turner said. 

As of 11:30 a.m. the campus had not been given the "all clear." SWAT and Tucson police had cleared a large portion of campus, but school officials had yet to open campus back up to the public. 

Campus was clear to other civilians at the time of the incident, and we're told school doesn't start until Aug. 23. 

The Downtown Campus will be open on Monday, July 24, according to a tweet by PCC info's twitter page. The library will remain closed for repairs.
